Annapurna Sanctuary variation, 14 days trek/4 nights at kathmandu total 18 days
Level :Moderate (max. altitude 4,050 m)
Best season : March-April and Oct-Nov
For spectacular, almost touching-the-mountain views of some Himalayan giants, this is the shortest trek, and the one with the least altitude sickness concerns. The trip takes you through the heart of Gurung . As you enter the amphitheatre that is the 'sanctuary' to reach Annapurna Base Camp (South Face), the scale and icy beauty of the mountains seems to engulf you. An added bonus is a return trip that includes a stop at a hot spring town, as well as a night and a morning at one of the best viewpoints in the Annapurna region.
